Hmm, I just realised that automate leaves doesn't quite do what I
want.  I want to be able to select leaves from particular branches,
and as far as I can see, automate leaves doesn't provide such a
feature.  For my purposes, it would then be quite a bit better to use
automate heads, looping over branches...

Still, automate ancestry_differences and automate toposort solve other
parts of my script (that are buggy!) quite well.  All I need now is
automate log and automate changes, then I'll be able to make it really
simple.  Hmm, maybe I can create automate log, at the very least...


P.S. for those who wonder: I've started playing with IRC.  My identity
is gizmo1, and has been since...  oh, I think 1989 or earlier...

See for details.
